Do you know that For Otis Sake Rescues nationally but serves the local community?

In addition to our rescue efforts, we at For Otis Sake are also committed to improving the community we serve through the following special programs: 

  • Discounted adoption rates for veterans, first responders and senior citizens
  • Support for Hospice patients and their pets
  • Support for shelter to service dog programs
  • Support for community members struggling to care for their pets
  • Opportunities for kids/teens to give back through our Kids Up! Program which launched Spring 2019

Check out some of our recent events where we were out and about, spreading the word about For Otis Sake Rescue and our programs! 

Kid's Up! Humane Education Program

Cross Curricular Connections


Our lessons and activities include reading, writing, research, math and science skills along with the humane education concepts. 

Health and Nutrition


Part of being a good pet owner is knowing what to feed and what not to feed them to keep them happy and healthy. 

Safety and Dog Bite Prevention


Reading dog body language and knowing when/how to properly greet a dog is important and helps prevent bites and other injuries.
